If I May...

Once a month’s not bad, right?

Since it’s June, I guess I better catch up on May.

Not much happened in May. It was nice to visit with our Mamas and families on Mother’s Day. I have the cutest Mama and the cutest Mama-in-law EVER! I love them both so much. They are both so supportive of Cam and me.

I celebrated my 10th anniversary at work. It was a weird day. I never thought I would work at Nu Skin as long as I have. But it’s a great place to work, with great people to work with. I’ve had some fun times and made some good friends.

Probably the most exciting thing to happen in May was the day Jake came home from Afghanistan. He had been in San Diego at Camp Pendleton for a week or so, and he rolled into Camp Williams on the 29th. It was very exciting. I had to work the day that Russ came home, so this was my first experience with the military homecoming. The whole place was buzzing with excitement, and everyone’s emotions were running high. It was fun to see all of the Marine’s families hanging out and visiting with each other.

Once we saw the buses coming down the lane toward the crowd, it got real hectic real quick! Everyone rushed the buses, and we could see a Marine on the first bus forcing the door open to get off. Everyone was hugging, crying, laughing…it’s just an awesome experience to see the Marines reunite with their families. A few of them even met their children for the first time! Imagine being a world away when your first child is born. I can't even imagine.

I’m thankful for Jake and I’m glad he’s safe at home again. A few things went wrong, and not everyone was as lucky as we are to have their Marine home safe and unharmed. That is a truly humbling thought, and to say that I am grateful and relieved is really an understatement.

And...that’s our May in a nutshell.
